Henry Romeike, Inc. of New York advertised itself as "the first established and most complete newspaper cutting bureau in the world." Henry Romeike, born in Riga, Latvia, emigrated first to London where he founded a clipping service, then in 1887 to the U.S. where he became head of the service which bore his name.
The clippings (apparently collected by the Romeike service) cover a wide range of subjects and are taken from British and U.S. newspapers. They include straight news stories, features, sermons, poetry and correspondence.
